August Burns Red Ranked

Just finished listening to Phantom Anthem and ended up re-listening to their entire discography. So here goes, my first band ranking, IMO of course... Let me know your ranking in the comments, I'm sure you will.
1August Burns Red

Could it really be any other album? Technical, with great melodic sections and a tasteful amount of breakdowns. A great album all-around.

Favourite Tracks:
Marianas Trench (hands down the best song they ever wrote, IMO)
White Washed
The Escape Artist
2August Burns Red

Desperately needs a remaster as the production quality is the biggest downfall this album has. Guinness World Record for the album with the most breakdowns/min. Classic 'genericore' done right, enough said...

Favourite Tracks:
Back Burner (my personal favourite ABR song)
Up Against the Ropes
The Eleventh Hour
3August Burns Red
Phantom Anthem

Definitely my favourite record since Messengers. August Burns Red have never really strayed too far from their formula. Album doesn't have any filler, but the first half is much stronger than the second (with the exception of the closer of course). The same can be said for all of their albums, so no surprise there. 4/5.

Favourite Tracks:
Carbon Copy (best song since the Messengers album IMO)
Invisible Enemy
Hero of the Half Truth
4August Burns Red
Rescue & Restore

When this album first came out, I couldn't stand it. Upon re-listening, I changed my opinion. But I still can't understand why, by most metrics, this is their highest reviewed/rated album. Certainly a solid album regardless, every single song has something to like about it.

Favourite Tracks:
Fault Line
Count It All as Lost
5August Burns Red
Found in Far Away Places

A decent album for sure, the only issue is that all the songs seem to meld together into a blur. No real stand out tracks here, unfortunately.

Favourite Tracks:
Twenty-One Grams
6August Burns Red

Honestly, a good album, although the attempted experimentation ended up being somewhat detrimental.

Favourite Tracks:
Poor Millionaire
Internal Cannon
Salt & Light
7August Burns Red
Thrill Seeker

A solid but generic metalcore album mainly let down by poor production. They should remaster this, along with Messengers too.

Favourite Tracks:
Your Little Suburbia Is In Ruins
Speech Impediment
The Seventh Trumpet
